Artemis Resources Limited (ASX:ARV) Encountered High Grade Silver And Copper Grades At Bali Hi Project
The results confirm that economic grades of silver and copper are present on the project and warrant further exploration.
Best results include:
- 746 g/t Ag 12% Cu BH 122
- 259 g/t Ag 33% Cu BH 159
- 75 g/t Ag 14% Cu BH 160
- 11 g/t Ag 12% Cu BH 156
- 14 g/t Ag 12% Cu BH 129
Exploration at Bali Hi
Artemis collected 62 rock samples across the Bali Hi project. This was the first program of work on this tenement by Artemis. The objective was to confirm that the tenements were prospective for mineralization.
Rock chips have returned very high silver and copper results and indicate precious/base metal targets at each of the three previously-identified target zones - Bali Hi, Bali Hi East and Bali Lo.
The Bail Hi Project falls in the Ashburton province, and consists of 2 tenements (E08/1372 and E08/2129) located approximately 75km west south-west of Paraburdoo, Western Australia. The project is located 98 km south-east of Artemis' Mt Clement Gold/Silver project.
The best results from this rock sampling program are included as Table 1 (see link at the bottom of the release). Samples were selected to target any visible mineralization to ascertain the potential for economic grade mineralization.
Given this criteria, the levels of copper (to 33%) and silver (to 746g/t), are outstanding and prove that the tenement is capable of generating high grades. The amount of such high grade material is not yet known but these results are not considered representative of the expected average grade.
Artemis has also acquired an additional 10% interest in Bali Hi tenement E08/1372 increasing its interest to 70% at a cost of $10,000 (satisfied by the issue of Artemis shares to the vendor) and holds 100% of Bali Hi tenement E08/2129.
Further work is planned at Bali Hi during the next quarter. This work will include a more systematic approach to exploration following what is considered an excellent reconnaissance sampling program.
